A Sebastopol woman, who was vulnerable when she turned to drugs, has been jailed for possessing and trafficking ice.
Aimee Spicer, 28, was jailed at the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Wednesday to 57 days behind bars, which she has already served.
Magistrate Ron Saines told Spicer during a sentencing hearing she was trafficking a significant level of methylamphetamine.
He said she fell into drug offending because of her psychological vulnerabilities.
"You supplied methylamphetamine to other people who may well be just the same as you (who are) making vulnerable decisions," Mr Saines said.
"The fact you did it for profit and your own use is the most serious matter. You are still a candidate for time in prison."
Spicer pleaded guilty to four offences on Tuesday, including possessing and trafficking methamphetamine.
The court had previously been told Ballarat Divisional Response Unit detectives executed a search warrant at Spicer and her partner, Benjamin Schultz’s Sebastopol home on February 16.
Detectives located methamphetamine, cannabis, drug paraphernalia and shotgun ammunition.
Mr Saines placed Spicer on an 18-month Community Corrections Order with conditions she undergo random drug tests, judicial monitoring, complete 80 hours of unpaid community work and treatment and rehabilitation for drug use and mental health.
Spicer's co-accused, Schultz, pleaded guilty in July to 12 charges, including possessing ammunition, unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered car.
He was jailed for five months but has served his sentence. He supported Spicer in court on Wednesday.
